It’s a 5 minute walk from station at the most and the place is also well connected by road with central regions of Mumbai. BEST buses from all parts of the city ply here as well. So connectivity is excellent. Most of the students come from the nearby areas such as Dadar, Matunga, Sion and Antop Hill.
The campus is shared with school and the Arts, Science, Commerce College. The infrastructure of this college is nothing exceptional but nothing is lacking about it too. There are all the equipment and facilities needed pertaining to the course such as projectors, air-conditioned classrooms, wi-fi connectivity etc. The library is smallish but it is sufficiently spacious looking at the strength of current batches. Overall the infrastructure is good and students rate it 7 on 10.
